Everything was great. Driver picked us up. Were sitting comfortably on the boat deck the whole time and enjoyed the ride.

The ship was comfortable and air-conditioned, offering an in-flight movie without audio but with subtitles (inside). Optional outdoor seating on top of the ship was also available. It was a little tricky to locate the EkaJaya Check-In Office to get our boarding passes and I would not recommend bringing large rolling luggage if you can help it, because the path from the check-in office to the actual ship is not entirely paved. All in all, had a good experience. Would travel with them again.
